Cuomo Challenges Ken Cuccinelli To Prove Trump’s Bahamas Claim, And He Can’t

Westlake Legal Group 5d7ca9ae2400002e2a7a07f7 Cuomo Challenges Ken Cuccinelli To Prove Trump’s Bahamas Claim, And He Can’t

Ken Cuccinelli, the acting head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, failed to back up President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that some “very bad people” from the Bahamas could be trying to sneak into the U.S. when he was challenged on the issue by CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

Trump on Monday told reporters that “we have to be very careful” about admitting refugees fleeing the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian because “the Bahamas had some tremendous problems with people going to the Bahamas who weren’t supposed to be there.”

“I don’t want to allow people who weren’t supposed to be in the Bahamas to come into the United States, including some very bad people and some very bad gang members and some very, very bad drug dealers,” Trump alleged, without offering any evidence to back up his claim.

Cuomo on Thursday told Cuccinelli that “nobody can put meat on the bones” of Trump’s allegation. He repeatedly challenged Cuccinelli on the claim and the Trump administration official repeatedly pushed back, saying he didn’t have any additional information or anything further to add on the subject.

“But you must, because you are in a position of authority now,” said Cuomo. He told Cuccinelli he must either say “the president meant this, and here’s the basis” or admit “I don’t know why he said that. It is not something that I can prove.”

Cuomo later repeatedly asked Cuccinelli if “a single drug dealer” had been caught trying to sneak into the U.S. from the Bahamas because he had heard “the answer is zero from five different sources.”

“Well, that’s great,” responded Cuccinelli, who last month caused controversy when he gave the inscription on the Statue of Liberty a racist twist. 

“Well, you didn’t tell me you were going to ask that question before I got on here,” he complained. “And I’m sitting here with no notes. So, I don’t know the answer to that question.”

“I think that if you had proof that the president was right, you’d be giving it to me right now, Ken,” said Cuomo.

“Chris, maybe you should, maybe instead of sandbagging me, you should try to give a little heads-up on what you’d like to actually have a constructive conversation about,” Cuccinelli added.

Vaping may be harming your teeth, too

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6085437510001_6085435280001-vs Vaping may be harming your teeth, too Healthline.com fox-news/health/respiratory-health/stop-smoking fox-news/health/dental-health fnc/health fnc Dan Gray article 7731cf45-5f9a-5cb1-b552-6b9cd41d8183

Americans are smoking fewer cigarettes than ever.

But this doesn’t mean cigarettes are completely on the way out.

Vaping devices, also known as electronic cigarettes, have exploded in popularity in recent years.

ROMNEY PUSHES E-CIGARETTE RECALL IN RESPONSE TO VAPING-RELATED LUNG ILLNESSES

Leading the way is Juul, which holds nearly three-quarters of the U.S. market share. From 2017 to 2018, Juul sales increased by nearly 800 percent.

While these devices might seem at first blush to be healthier than smoking, they carry many of the same risks — and even a few new risks.

Since last month, federal officials have reported more than 400 cases of serious lung illness that may be tied to vaping.

Dr. Barbara Keber, chair of family medicine at Northwell Health’s Glen Cove Hospital in New York, told Healthline it’s a serious situation.

TRUMP TAKES AIM AT TEEN VAPING, PROPOSES BAN ON NON-TOBACCO FLAVORED E-CIGARETTES

“Many of these people have actually ended up on a ventilator with this acute illness,” she said. “Most of them are actually adolescents or young adults, using e-cigarettes, or e-nicotine instead of smoking.”

Your family doctor will likely tell you that vaping is an addictive habit that’s bad for your body.

Your dentist, meanwhile, may have a few thoughts on why it’s bad for your teeth.

Like cigarettes, vaping devices — Juul or otherwise — are not good for oral health.

Here’s a few of the risks the devices can present for your teeth.

Gingivitis

This oral disease causes inflammation of the gums and can progress to more serious conditions if left untreated.

One of its most common symptoms is bad breath.

Dr. Heather Kunen, DDS, MS, an orthodontist and co-founder of the Beam Street dental clinic in New York, told Healthline that nicotine constricts blood vessels and prevents healthy blood flow.

That means, she said, that vaping (or smoking) can contribute to the development of gingivitis.

Kunen says that when it comes to convincing younger people to stay away from nicotine, she typically appeals to their vanity, explaining to them what gingivitis can do.

“I tell them that if they continue to smoke or vape, their breath will smell and that they will have an increased risk of losing their teeth,” she said.

Periodontal disease

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a more advanced stage of gingivitis, one that’s characterized by problems with the tissues surrounding the teeth.

Keber told Healthline that the components found in vaporized nicotine form a bacterial breeding ground along the gums.

“The breakdown of some of these products absolutely softens the tooth enamel and degrades it,” she explained. “That’s one piece of it. But these products also adhere to the saliva in the mouth and create a place for the bacteria to actually settle in the little crevices in the teeth and in between the teeth. It increases the bacterial component in the mouth, giving way to gum disease.”

When gingivitis and periodontal disease go unchecked, teeth can be lost. In fact, periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.

Tooth decay and oral thrush

These two conditions are both caused by dryness in the mouth.

TEXAS TEEN WHO STARTED VAPING TO QUIT SMOKING ON LIFE SUPPORT, MOM SAYS

Vaping is a major risk factor, due to the way the vapor affects conditions in the mouth.

“We don’t really know exactly what all the ingredients are in the liquid that’s used to vaporize the nicotine,” said Keber. “One of the ingredients that’s known to be in the vaporizing liquid, though, is propylene glycol, which is something similar to what’s used in antifreeze. And once you vaporize, the breakdown includes some pretty significantly harmful products.”

Propylene glycol actually restricts moisture by binding to moistness inside the mouth. This leads to a dry mouth and a dry throat, which both contribute to tooth decay and oral thrush.

These chemicals also have a way of softening the enamel in the teeth, which also contributes to adverse effects.

“That softening of the enamel leads to a possibility of increased development of dental cavities, or tooth decay,” said Kunen.

Oral cancer

There’s a perception that vaping may not be healthy, but that it’s healthier than smoking.

“No company has been able to show any scientific data that e-cigarettes are safe or a healthier alternative to smoking,” said Kunen. “Preliminary studies carried out by national health organizations are showing that e-cigarettes do indeed pose huge health risks and contain carcinogens that can cause DNA changes that lead to cancer.”

One study, released last year by the American Chemical Society, did indeed conclude that vaping chemicals may damage DNA, thus increasing the risk of developing cancer.

“The vapor breaks down into acetic acid, lactic acid, and propionaldehyde, all of which are toxic, and toxic to the tissues in the oral cavity,” said Keber.

To vape or not to vape?

Vaping is a new enough practice that scientific literature is still playing catchup.

Kunen says that while e-cigarettes might be appealing to someone who is looking for an alternative to cigarettes, they should be avoided at all costs.

“E-cigarettes are not safe and are not a healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes, period,” she said. “Their sleek appearance and vapor-like aerosol masks the danger that lies within. The high popularity of Juul and other e-cigarettes, especially among the young population, should be of major concern and the associated risks of e-cigarettes must be more highly publicized.”

Vaper, 18, suing e-cigarette maker Juul after docs say he has lungs of a 70-year-old: reports

An Illinois student-athlete is suing the e-cigarette company Juul after doctors said he now has lungs similar to those of a 70-year-old man.

Adam Hergenreder, of Gurnee, who used e-cigarettes for more than a year and a half, claims he was a victim of deceptive marketing by the San Francisco company, according to the lawsuit, which was filed Friday in Lake County Circuit Court.

“To put it mildly, Adam didn’t stand a chance to avoid getting hooked on these toxic timebombs,” Hergenreder’s lawyer, Antonio Romanucci, told Chicago’s FOX 32.

“To put it mildly, Adam didn’t stand a chance to avoid getting hooked on these toxic timebombs.”

Hergenreder received the bad diagnosis about his lungs after he was hospitalized late last month for nausea and breathing trouble, the station reported.

“It was scary to think about that — that little device did that to my lungs,” Hergenreder told Chicago’s WGN-TV, recalling the diagnosis.

The student wrestler told the station he used both nicotine and THC products when he vaped – and now it’s unclear whether his lungs will ever fully recover.

“I was a varsity wrestler before this,” he said, “and I might not ever be able to wrestle because that’s a very physical sport and my lungs might not be able to hold that exertion. … It’s sad.”

“I was a varsity wrestler before this, and I might not ever be able to wrestle because that’s a very physical sport and my lungs might not be able to hold that exertion. … It’s sad.”

— Adam Hergenreder, 18, plaintiff in lawsuit against Juul

Hergenreder is among hundreds of vapers across the U.S. who have contracted lung illnesses from e-cigarettes.

On Thursday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 380 cases had been reported across 36 states, correcting from a previously reported number of 450.

“The previous case count was higher because it reported possible cases that were under investigation by states. The current number includes only confirmed and probable cases reported by states to CDC after classification,” the CDC said in its update.

There have been six vaping-related deaths to date, in California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota and Oregon.

Doctors say the lung illnesses resemble an inhalation injury, with the body apparently reacting to a caustic substance being breathed in. Symptoms have included shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain, diarrhea, and vomiting.

But the CDC has not yet found a specific cause of the illnesses, and no single product or ingredient has been identified.

On Wednesday, President Trump said his administration was considering a ban on non-tobacco-flavored e-cigarette products, citing nationwide concerns about adverse effects.

Trump referenced those concerns again Friday in a Twitter message.

“While I like the Vaping alternative to Cigarettes,” the president wrote, “we need to make sure this alternative is SAFE for ALL! Let’s get counterfeits off the market, and keep young children from Vaping!

In addition to Juul, Hergenreder’s lawsuit names as a defendant the Waukegan, Ill., gas station where he claims he regularly purchased nicotine-based Juul products when he was underage, FOX 32 reported.

In late August, Juul CEO Kevin Burns called vaping-related illnesses “worrisome,” but said he had no plans to pull the company’s products from the market.

The company’s stock price has tanked since the Trump administration announced plans for the partial ban, the New York Post reported.

Joseph diGenova: McCabe prosecution would start holding Obama officials responsible for anti-Trump abuses

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6086043814001_6086038286001-vs Joseph diGenova: McCabe prosecution would start holding Obama officials responsible for anti-Trump abuses Joseph diGenova fox-news/tech/topics/fbi fox-news/politics/justice-department fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 09160899-287d-5bc9-90de-a85ba53f4504

It’s clear that the Justice Department is right to seek criminal charges against fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in light of the leaking and lying that cost him his job last year.

After rejecting a final appeal from McCabe’s legal team, the Justice Department stands ready to seek an indictment against McCabe based on his misconduct as described in an Office of the Inspector General’s report regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Fox News has reported.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that McCabe repeatedly lied to investigators about his leaking of confidential information regarding the Clinton probe. That’s a felony. The Justice Department would be remiss in its duty if it ignored the finding and let McCabe escape criminal charges.

MCCABE TEAM PRESSURES DOJ TO SHOW CARDS AMID GRAND JURY SPECULATION

Fox News reported that U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie Liu recommended moving forward with charges against McCabe and that Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen rejected an appeal by attorneys for McCabe to go against Liu’s recommendation.

More from Opinion

Liu and Rosen made the proper decision. Just because he held a high position in the FBI does not mean that McCabe is above the law.

In the latest development in the case, Fox News reported Friday that attorneys for McCabe are trying again to get the Justice Department to drop plans to prosecute the fired FBI official, who briefly served as acting director of the bureau after James Comey was fired from the top FBI job.

McCabe’s attorneys made the request citing “rumors from reporters starting this morning that the grand jury considering charges against Mr. McCabe had declined to vote an indictment,” according to an email from McCabe’s legal team obtained by Fox News.

If McCabe’s involvement is as extensive as some are suggesting, I have complete confidence that he’ll soon face charges far more serious than merely lying about his leaks.

The likely prosecution of McCabe is an important step in the necessary effort to hold senior Obama-era officials at the FBI and elsewhere accountable for abusing the power and credibility of the U.S. government in an attempt to reverse the American people’s choice of Donald Trump to become president of the United States.

Last month, I reassured Fox News readers that Attorney General William Barr’s decision not to pursue criminal charges against Comey was not “a vindication of Comey, a defeat for the president, or an end to the inquiry surrounding these leaks.”

The likely impending indictment of McCabe proves that I was right to trust Barr’s judgment. The restraint Barr showed in his handling of Comey’s own leaks adds to the legitimacy of the case against McCabe, which seems about to become the first prosecution in the “investigation of the investigators.”

This shows that President Trump’s Justice Department and Attorney General Barr are focused solely on the restoration of public trust, and that they’re totally committed to the integrity of the process as they seek to remove the stain left by the out-of-control Obama-era FBI leadership.

We now know this investigation has teeth. All that remains to be seen is how far it all goes. A wider and wider swath of misconduct during the Comey-McCabe era is coming under scrutiny, as the motion alleging that the government withheld evidence in the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn shows.

Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court documents – at least some of which reportedly carry McCabe’s signature — may finally be approaching declassification as well.

The ultimate question will be just how much evidence emerges linking McCabe to a conspiracy to trump up charges against Flynn and inflate the Russiagate hoax in an effort to sabotage President Trump.

If McCabe’s involvement is as extensive as some are suggesting, I have complete confidence that he’ll soon face charges far more serious than merely lying about his leaks.

The decision to prosecute McCabe is the strongest indication yet that the Justice Department is on the trail of some truly nefarious behavior by some extremely high-ranking government officials. The only question now is how deep and broad this genuine conspiracy goes.

Ex-Ethics Chief Breaks Down Why The Trump-Turnberry Story Is Such A ‘Big Deal’

Westlake Legal Group 5cf25976240000030985660f Ex-Ethics Chief Breaks Down Why The Trump-Turnberry Story Is Such A ‘Big Deal’

The former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics used a lengthy Twitter thread to explain what he believes should be the real concern about U.S. military personnel staying at President Donald Trump’s Turnberry golf resort in Scotland.

Walter Shaub wrote Friday that the focus should not be on whether Trump had ordered anyone to stay there, which he doubted, or even on when anyone first stayed there. Instead, he said, it was to do with “the questions raised by these trips.”

“Has [Trump] created a culture where officials believe he wants people to stay at his properties?” asked Shaub, who served under former President Barack Obama and then Trump for six months until he resigned in July 2017.

“We can see how many of his appointees perceive an expectation to socialize after hours at Trump hotel (an activity that was not traditionally common at that level of the exec branch),” he noted.

“He dispatches his VP and appointees to speak to his paying customers. He tweeted that officials who stayed at Turnberry showed ‘good taste,’” Shaub continued. “He takes his appointees on his frequent trips to his luxury resorts. He touts those resorts frequently. He’s bidding on the G7 Summit.”

Shaub claimed it was “implausible” to say it was a coincidence that military personnel stays at Turnberry had risen since Trump took office, a development that is being investigated by both the Air Force and the House Oversight Committee.

It “degrades the ethical culture of government” and “damages our standing in the world and our effort to preach anticorruption efforts to developing countries,” he added.

“Bottom line: Turnberry is a big deal because it’s a symptom of a problem in an administration that is anything but transparent,” Shaub concluded.

Ari Melber Tears Apart Lou Dobbs’ ‘Sunshine’ Review Of The Trump White House

Westlake Legal Group 5d7c9097240000122779f762 Ari Melber Tears Apart Lou Dobbs’ ‘Sunshine’ Review Of The Trump White House

MSNBC’s Ari Melber on Friday broke down why he believes Fox Business host Lou Dobbs went full sycophant with his review of what it’s like to work in President Donald Trump’s White House earlier in the week.

Dobbs, a vocal supporter of Trump, on Thursday claimed “the joint is hopping” with “sunshine beaming throughout the place, and on almost every face.” “It’s winner, and winning center, and our White House, our president, is at the top of his game,” he said.

“It’s ‘winning center.’ I almost wonder who wrote that,” Melber quipped.

Dobbs is “basically begging his viewers to ignore all of the chaos that is out there,” he added. “[It’s a] little bit like the policeman in that scene from ‘The Naked Gun’ when a rocket explodes in a fireworks factory.”

“Now, why does Dobbs overstate it this much? He’s not just speaking to his own audience, which might overlap with Trump’s base, he may also be speaking to the famed audience of one, Donald Trump [who] turns to these TV individuals, some of them, for information. The Washington Post notes that Trump is ’as likely to heed a Fox News host as any a senior administration official.”

California lawmakers splashed with ‘what appeared to be blood’ during anti-vaxxing protest at Statehouse

A protester was taken into custody at the California Statehouse in Sacramento on Friday evening after she allegedly threw a feminine hygiene device containing “what appeared to be blood” onto the floor of the state Senate from a public viewing area, splashing the liquid onto lawmakers working below.

The Senate chamber was evacuated and lawmakers finished their work in a committee room on the final day of the legislative session.

The woman, who was not identified, was detained on charges including assault, vandalism and disrupting “the orderly conduct of official business” at the Statehouse, the California Highway Patrol said in a news release.

(Senator Steven Glazer via AP)

The disruption occurred as a group of protesters — many holding signs promoting “Medical Freedom” — were permitted into the Senate chambers to overlook state Senate proceedings from the upstairs balcony. They had been demonstrating against a recently signed state measure intended to crack down on fraudulent medical exemptions for vaccinations.

Around 5:15 p.m., a woman in the group leaned over the railing and hurled the unidentified red liquid onto the unsuspecting lawmakers. Someone reportedly called out: “That’s for the dead babies.”

The Senate called a quick recess and law enforcement evacuated the chambers. A video posted to social media shows a woman, who walked out of the gallery into the hallway, saying, “My menstrual blood is all over the Senate floor… a representation of the blood of the dead babies,” before she is then handcuffed.

State Sen. Scott Wiener, a Democrat, posted on Twitter after the ordeal.

“A few minutes ago, the anti-vaxxer stalkers – who’ve engaged in a harassment campaign all week – dropped a red substance onto the Senate floor from the elevated public gallery, dousing several of my colleagues,” Wiener wrote. “These anti-vaxxers are engaging in criminal behavior. They’ve now repeatedly assaulted senators and are engaging in harassing and intimidating behavior every single day, as we try to do the people’s work. They’re a cancer on the body politic and are attacking democracy.”

The incident comes after Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, signed controversial legislation into law this week that places restrictions on medical vaccine exemptions for children. State Sen. Richard Pan, a Democrat representing Sacramento, authored the bill. He was shoved by a protester last week outside the Capitol.

“This incident was incited by the violent rhetoric perpetuated by leaders of the antivaxx movement,” Pan said in a statement to FOX 40 Sacramento. “As their rhetoric escalates, their incidents of violence does as well. This is an attack on the democratic process and an assault on all Californians and it must be met with strong condemnation by everyone.”

Senate Bill 276 and SB 714 intend to increase oversight on California’s vaccine medical exemption system, according to the Sacramento Bee. Doctors in the state will be required to submit a form to the state Department of Public Health every time they issue a medical exemption. Public health officials will be alerted when doctors issue more than five exemptions a year and review each exemption case to evaluate if fraud is being committed. The system will also flag schools that fall below a 95 percent vaccination rate.

Supporters argue the new legislation would protect children who are too sick or young to be vaccinated from being exposed to preventable diseases while at school, according to the Bee. Those in opposition to the new law say vaccines are not universally safe and that the measure would infringe on the patient-doctor relationship.

Protesters camped outside the governor’s office this week as others in opposition to the legislation crowded hallways in Sacramento’s Capitol building and attempted to disrupt hearings and floor sessions, the Los Angeles Times reported. The group responsible for organizing the rally outside the Capitol denounced the woman’s behavior Friday.

“We strongly denounce this, it goes far beyond crossing a line,” Jonathan Lockwood, executive director of Conscience Coalition, told the Sacramento Bee.

Senate President Pro Tempore Toni Atkins said in a statement: “California’s legislative process, as well as our doors, should remain open to all who wish to observe or speak out on a variety of issues, but we cannot allow anyone to endanger others. The behavior that occurred in the Senate Chamber is unacceptable and has been dealt with by Capitol law enforcement. We will continue to do the people’s important business.”

The remains of more than 2,200 unborn children have been found at the Illinois home of a former Indiana abortion doctor who died earlier this month, according to reports.

The discovery was made by members of the family of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who died Sept. 3. The family members had been searching through Klopfer’s belongings after he died, FOX 59 of Indianapolis reported.

There is no evidence that any abortions were performed at the private residence, the Will County (Ill.) Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

According to FOX 59, Klopfer’s medical license was suspended in 2015 after accusations that he failed to report an abortion performed on a 13-year-old girl.

The Will County Sheriff’s Office has launched an investigation into the matter, WSBT-TV of South Bend reported. The county coroner’s office took possession of the remains, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

Bill Maher says Amy Klobuchar would be solid ‘compromise’ choice for Dems’ 2020 nomination

Westlake Legal Group bill-maher-season-17-5-HBO Bill Maher says Amy Klobuchar would be solid 'compromise' choice for Dems' 2020 nomination Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/amy-klobuchar fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc bdead0fa-a645-536b-b6bd-4ef2977422c3 article

“Real Time” host Bill Maher said Friday that Democrats could be heading toward a contested 2020 convention and suggested that Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., could emerge as a strong “compromise candidate.”

“Can I present a scenario?” Maher asked his guests during the show’s panel segment. “I think this might be one of those years where … they can’t get over that ‘centrist’ versus ‘socialist’ thing. So Elizabeth Warren at some point takes Bernie’s voters, he drops out. It’s Warren and Biden. And they go into the convention and it’s deadlock. This has happened before in American politics and they need a compromise candidate.”

He then pointed to Klobuchar as a viable option for Democrats in the general election against President Trump.

“I’m looking hard at Amy Klobuchar,” Maher said. “You know why? Because — this is not an insult to Amy Klobuchar — I like you, but they put generic Democrat on the ballot, they win.”

Plus, he added, “She’s a woman. That moves a lot with the wokesters.”

Guest Krystal Ball of The Hill rejected Maher’s argument, insisting a “centrist” would lead to another defeat for Democrats. She insisted that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., would beat Trump.

Maher pushed back, saying, “Even the centrists in the Democratic Party are pretty far left.”

Meanwhile, Democratic strategist Fernand Amandi told Maher that a centrist is the wrong “C-word” and that it’s actually “charisma” that matters most — and stressed the Democratic candidate should have plenty of it.

“Well, we’re f—ed then,” Maher replied.

Carrie Underwood reveals the one condition she has for an ‘American Idol’ reunion

Fans first saw Carrie Underwood compete on “American Idol” in 2005. Now, 14 years later, the star is sharing whether she’d be up for a reunion.

On Wednesday, the 36-year-old singer — who won the reality competition series in season 4 — revealed she had one condition when it comes to returning to her roots.

“An ‘Idol’ reunion?” Underwood asked Entertainment Tonight‘s host Nischelle Turner.

“I see all of those judges,” the “Southbound” songstress added of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. “I’ve never seen them together since I was on the show but that’s pretty incredible,” she said.

The mom of two was referencing how Kelly Clarkson — who won season one — recently brought together the show’s three original judges for her daytime talk show.

“As long as they don’t judge me,” the star teased. “I’m down if nobody critiques anything.”
